Re: Group Size and MOA

Aussie

I agree that there is an advantage to having a "walking around" setting. I set my big game rifles to 2 MOA up and my varmint rigs to 1 MOA up when I'm just out floundering about but when I need accuracy and the critter decides to stay put I adjust elevation to the correct distance (usually in the 250 to further range unless I'm getting really picky or for a brain shot).

I guess that last remark in my previous post was more for the fellas that shoot their whatever to 400, 500, 600 and further by guessing holdoff(s) or without any knowledge of that's happening. (A little tiny group two (2) feet below the critter isn't much good.)

    Dave ,
    No arguement from me .
    If Leica rangefinders weren't $1000 here I'd have one and do the same as you do . Fortunately most of my longer shots are over pre-measured distances so have managed without so far .
    Juggling available funds between too many sports at the moment .Perhaps when I sell off that spare Leupold 6.5 - 20x ?
